    Drumber Contest

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Last XL Jamfest T-Shirt goes free of charge (i.e., you don't even pay shipping) to the first drumber who provides a dry stereo mp3 file at 320kbps that takes this song from demo to done-o.


    (I take my daughter to college in Colorado on Tuesday, and this is the last tune we need drums for).

    120 BPM - GOOD LUCK!!!!

    Yeah, I like how a "contest" sounds a tad less like I'm begging for drum tracks.

    yet more proof that you and your whole damn family have a retarded amount of talent. sounds really fantastic, man.

    i'll gladly give this a stab, but there are 2 problems:

    1. my file transfer process is really clunky, and it'd probably take less time for some people to get you a finished track before i even had the file in my daw.

    2. you've heard my drumming. i'm bound to overthink this thing and give you some ridiculously overwrought track that you wouldn't even want to use.

    i dunno, i may give it shot.

    I hope you do. I feel like you need another shirt! But if you don't, I appreciate you just taking the time to listen.

    (please try...you're fucking great)

    I can fix some timing things here and there. You'll notice the acoustic guitar edits...I'll retrack them after I get some drums, but I was more concerned with them being in time right now than sounding good. Jaimee kinda' wanders on her guitar tracks.

    Listen to you with your "I'll do more than what's required" schtick. I'll take an mp3 or I'll take nothing!

    ok chris, i have the drum track done, but i'm a little unsure if it's going to be what you want for the song. i think it sounds pretty good, and of course i set out to serve to song, but i also made the drums a bit interesting and injected my own style. nothing ridiculous, but not exactly typical for a folk-type track.

    anyway, i'd post it right now except i'm out of cd-rs (yes, this is the clunky file transfer process i was talking about). oh wait, no i'm not out of them--i actually have about 100 of them, but none of them work in my fucking archaic harman kardon burner!!!

    so tomorrow i'll pick up some cd-rs and get this thing to you. hope you dig it.

    Is this anywhere in the ballpark? I can play it cleaner and better developed but wanted to see if it's even within your concept.

    CHECK NEXT POST, BETTER I THINK
